We've been written about!
The British Newspaper, "The Sunday Times" chose the Ilana Goor Museum amongst the must-see attractions in Tel Aviv, even for a short weekend visit. Journalist, Sue Bryant recommends "Nip into the Ilana Goor Museum, a magnificent stone mansion that houses objects from around the world, including wooden tribal masks and animals sculpted from rusty farm equipment; there are wonderful views of the city from the rooftop sculpture garden, too".

In March, "Le Petit Journal Tel Aviv" published an article on the artist and designer Ilana Goor, and her amazing museum in Jaffa. The Magazine and article are geared towards the French speaking population of Israel. 
In April an article was published on the Ilana Goor Museum in an Indian Newspaper 
"The Tribune India"

What's Been Happening?

On the 27th of April, in cooperation with the Tel Aviv International Salon organization we were honored and delighted to host the Turkish Ambassador to Israel Mr. Mekin Mustafa Kemal Okem at the Ilana Goor Museum for a special lecture for Tel Aviv young professional community and even to present him with a catalogue of Ilana Goor's works! Young professionals were able to hear first-hand Turkey's position on trade, business, energy, regional politics, and of course, their constitutional referendum and the revived relationship between Turkey and Israel.

In addition, we were ecstatic to host Channel 2's chief correspondent Dana Weiss and the famous singer and actor Yehoram Gaon here in the museum for an exciting interview in honor of the release of Gaon's new autobiography. The interview was aired on the program "Weekend News" on Channel 2 on the 29th of April.
